WWE Smackdown episode of March 24, 2023, will be the second last episode before WrestleMania 39 event. Two matches are set for the show in advance.
Cody Rhodes faces Lugwig Kaiser in a singles match while Rey Mysterio will take on LA Knight in another match. Expect more build-up for WrestleMania 39 as Friday Night episode airs from MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Check below for the complete preview and match card for WWE SmackDown March 24, 2023 episode.
Cody Rhodes vs Ludwig Kaiser
During last week’s SmackDown LowDown, Imperium’s Ludwig Kaiser called Cody pathetic for winning the Royal Rumble from number 30 after eliminating Gunther who entered at number 1. Cody replied that he has all the respect for Gunther but he did not win the match. Kaiser said that Gunther is the Future of WWE. Cody then asked him to revert to present and challenged him for a match at SmackDow next week.
This will be Cody’s first match at SmackDown in six years. Will it distract him from his ultimate target Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39? Will Solo Sikoa and the Usos try to target Cody with Roman being away this week?
LA Knight vs Rey Mysterio
LA Knight interrupted Rey Mysterio last week when he was signing autographs. Knight asked Mysterio to face him at WrestleMania if he was not willing to face his son Dominik. Knight did not stop at that though and called himself LA Mysterio. The constant blabbering got Knight a punch from Rey Mysterio. They will clash in a full-fledged match on March 24 episode of SmackDown.
